Fantasy, Lore, & More: Dark Apprentice

Fantasy, Lore, & More: Dark Apprentice

Hi, I’m indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and in this episode Val Neil is joining me to talk about her book, Dark Apprentice.

What’s it about?

  • A dark wizard seeks immortality from a deadly mage in this morally grey fantasy adventure.

  • Dark Apprentice is a character-driven dark fantasy novel.

  • Set in a world where dark magic is forbidden, Dark Apprentice follows the twisted relationship between an ambitious young wizard and the ancient mage he sees as his ticket to power.

What’s in this episode:

  • Val Neil will pull us into her dark magical world with an excerpt from Dark Apprentice, and we’ll explore the forbidden practice of dark magic.

  • We’ll find out whether Nikolai will unlock the secret to Medea’s immortality or if he’ll end up like her other failed apprentices.

  • We’ll discuss Nikolai’s craving for power and immortality as he navigates his brutal magical training under Medea.

  • Join us in a world of complex antiheroes, deadly magic, and battles of the will.

Epic Fantasy Adventures with Melinda Kucsera
I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author and I narrate chapters from my adventure books, talk about other fantasy books and shows and try my best not to get derailed by the shenanigans of characters who are supposed to be fictional, but they don't stay within the pages of my books. I tell all their secrets and what trouble they get into in between books. Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
